The Body Speaks

It is there again. That shoulder tension and tightness. Usually it is in both of my shoulders, but this time it is mostly on the right side. It weighs me down. It is painful. It consumes my thoughts.

My body is speaking to me again. I want to listen and I want to avoid all at the same time. I listen because I want to grow and experience healing. I avoid from the fear of what I might need to do to experience that healing. When my body is in pain, I am learning that I usually am holding onto something emotionally that I need to let go of. Maybe it is a truth I need to speak, a resentment I need to let go of, or a forgiveness I need to give. Maybe it is an old core belief that no longer serves me; an old survival story that is no longer valid.

What do I need to let go of this time? My body is speaking. It never lies to me. I am learning to trust my body when it speaks rather than condemn, criticize, and tell it to hush. My body is for me, not against. It wants to survive and thrive.

How about you? What is your body speaking to you today?

Until the next story…Bethie
